Schilling On The Fence About Bonds

Curt Schilling's quotes in the Boston Herald today definitely leave some question where Schilling stands on Barry Bonds:

The day after Ortiz leaped to the defense of Bonds’ deeds and upcoming accomplishment, Schilling had little positive to say about the San Francisco Giants slugger, who hit the 745th homer of his career last night off Mets lefty Tom Glavine.

“He admitted that he used steroids, there’s no gray area,” Schilling on WEEI-AM yesterday morning. “He admitted to cheating on his wife, he admitted to cheating on his taxes and he cheated on the game. I think the reaction around the league, around the game, seeing what it is, is an indication of what people think - Hank Aaron not being there, the commissioner trying to figure out where to be. It’s sad.”

Schilling said the entire situation was regrettable.

“I don’t care that he’s black or green or purple or yellow or whatever - it’s unfortunate,” the Sox right-hander said. “There are good people and bad people. It’s unfortunate it’s happening the way it happened.”

During spring training last year, Schilling said that a player who cheats should have his records erased from the books.

“If you get caught using steroids, you should have everything you’ve done in this game wiped out for any period of time that you used it,” Schilling said. “A lot of players, I think, have said as much because it is cheating.”

People who wear socks painted with red food coloring usually don't throw stones, so if nothing else, I've gotta think Schilling's socks were indeed bloody. As for Bonds, he visits Fenway Park June 15-17. Get your tickets now.

Mr Schilling is a good man and knows what he is talking about.

Hey Jody, we're with you. But tell Curt not to walk Bonds in June--give him a heater between the eyes.
